PENCIL PORTRAIT - COMMISSION PROGRESS

It's been a while since I got a chance to create a pencil portrait. With this commission, I greatly enjoyed adding all the details as precisely as I could. For the first time ever I got to draw a person that was old enough to have some wrinkles on their face and it really was a fun challenge to draw them! Also, I'm very happy and pleased to notice ...
Here you have the first part of my comic diary!  As you might know, my inktober didn't end up being all about anatomy despite me declaring so... 
Even after starting "My Wonderful Artist Life Comic Diary", I decided to keep making these traditional blog posts every now and then to give you people a "more official" view on things, since the comic diary tends to be not-too-serious kind, offering my own artistic view on things. So, today I kindly present you: Tracon, 8.-10.8.2017 Above a couple...
 It's been three weeks since Ropecon, and a week since I returned from Worldcon. That's plenty of time to recover enough to finally write something about those two events which both took place in Helsinki, at Expo and Convention Centre. Honestly, it feels to me that Ropecon was a little warm-up before "the real deal", Worldcon. The three days ...
Sure, my plan was to make this commission a cute one. That's what the client wanted after all. But somehow, the way this little fellow turned out has even more of cuteness than I intended. Needless to say, I'm very happy with this painting of mine and I hope the client is going to like it as much as I do. Then, of course, the work-in-progress pictu...
One of the most pleasant commissions I've ever received! Honestly, I've enjoyed every single commission I've had a chance to create so far, but the subject of this particular painting was something that I can imagine myself painting just for the fun of it. The instructions I got from the client for this painting were: wolf, forest, full moon, blue ...
It's been 9 months since I attended an event for a first time to sell my products (Kitacon 2016). Now, let's take a look at how it all started: As can be seen above, my first representation wasn't that appealing but at least all the products were there. Such thing as a table cloth hadn't even crossed my mind and so I ended up using a blanket that I...
I have a handful amount of videos. I always try my best to record the unfolding of a painting, or the process of making a painting. unfortunately most of my work is time consuming, therefore, sharing it as speed videos or time-lapses is so far the best way for me to share my work process with you guys.  Watercolor painting time-lapse - Aurora ...
SOMETIMES THE EMERGENCY IS ABOUT CHRISTMAS CARDSJust when my Christmas holiday had started a friend of my mom was in a desperate need of two special Christmas cards for two very special people. I had made a couple of pencil portraits for her before and now she was asking if I could create these two emergency Christmas cards because she wanted to gi...
I'm not even sure why I'm so excited about it. Must be because moms are amazing. Sebastian's story will definitely not be the last story I create where the role (and the importance) of a mother is on the spotlight.Now I'm officially too tempted to talk about the story plot and need to change the subject. Let's talk about the change that is happenin...
 It's Sebastian work-in-progress update, of course! As you might know, I haven't had time to work on the illustrations as much as I thought I would, but slowly and steadily there has been some progress there too. I'm offering you all the sneak peeks I could find, being careful not to reveal too much. I only have 8 illustrations left now and ev...
